What’s in our baby’s hospital bag?

Hi guys! A lot has happened since I last blogged. I haven’t really been feeling the best and since I’m high risk for preterm labor I’ve been trying to take it easy.

The real hard part of pregnancy officially started for me at about 29 weeks. I’ve been in and out of the hospital for severe pain, to stop the contractions, and basically because I lost the ability to walk at about 33 weeks.

Aside from the fact that Im still having trouble walking, still experiencing extreme lower back pain, and contractions every night I’m starting to feel a little better. Not to mention I’m finally 34 weeks which according to my doctor if I happen to actually go into labor right now it would be ok. Baby is growing well and measuring great, so the scare of preterm labor has almost subsided.

Anyway, my husband and I filmed this video of what we’ll be taking to the hospital with us for our baby!!! Thought I’d share it here with you. We tried to keep it minimal as most things will be provided for baby at our hospital. 

So here’s what we’re taking:

What diaper bag: After constant thought and me being super picky, we finally settled on this shoulder bag/backpack diaper bag by JJ Cole. We purchased it at buy buy baby for a rather small amount because it was on sale at the time.

Pacifer: we chose to bring one pacifier because we did get it for free in our registry gift bag. Despite the fact our other daughter never was a pacifier fan we thought we’d have it just in case baby girl #2 is.

Clothing: we decided to keep it as minimal as possible only bringing what we absolutely think we’ll need. We brought 3 sleepers with feet and mitten fold overs. 3 under shirt onesies (just plain white), and our going home outfit. 

Accessories: we brought 3 pairs of socks, 3 baby hats, 3 pairs of mittens.

Blankets: We kept the blankets at a minimum since she will be a spring baby and in Arizona spring is basically summer. We decided on 2 receiving blankets and one big fluffy soft blanket.

Extras: since most of everything will be provided for baby we didn’t pack too many other things. We did however pack 6 diapers, a small travel sized package of wipes, and a burp cloth. 

Anyway hope you guys enjoyed this post! Hopefully it was helpful!
